Fuji Shelter

January 27, 2008

Leaving at 8:00 in the morning, the crew had snow falling the entire way, except for a short time near Oakridge. We parked at Gold Lake, gathered gear, shuttled one vehicle to Salt Creek Falls and headed up the trail to the Lake with the watch showing 11:00. After Gold Lake, the trail headed up hill to the ridge. The snow was fresh and fluffy but made for some gripping problems; so, Mary and Laurie swapped a ski which gave one to glide and one to brake! Susan and Dave were the strong legs that broke trail and sharp eyes to find the blue diamonds with. Once up the hill, the trail traversed the ridge winding up and down and around heavily snow-laden trees to the infamous downhill road. Ah! Due to the lateness of the day and continued snow fall, opted to not visit the shelter and continue the downhill ride to Salt Creek. Had a great time with a challenge and as Bea said “we all functioned exceptionally well as a group.” Thank you! The group: Susan Wanser, Dave Jensen, Brian Hamilton, Mary Hamilton, Becky Lipton, Bea Fontana and Laurie Funkhouser.
